A beautiful sculptural group depicting Saint Anne Trinity in carved, polychrome painted and gilded lime-wood. Saint Anne is supporting the Christ child on her left arm and with the other she is embracing Mary, who is reaching out for the Christ child. The cloak of Saint Anne is draped in sharp V-shape folds - typical for the late gothic era in transition with early Renaissance - and part of it is held up by a strap on her belt. The sculpture shows clear influences of South German and Northern Italian art.
Austria. Mid-16th century.
Dimensions: height 48,5cm ; width 20,5cm
